I have very fond memories of Plaza de Cataluna. It is so picturesque with it's pretty and colourful gardens as well as it's fountains on Catalonia Square.

In many ways the 'heart' of Barcelona as everything leads away from this Plaza particularly the Ramblas. Surrounding the Plaza are many of the tourist shops and stores which are famous in this city, including El Corte Ingles.
